Media Hooray! Another Bridal Magazine!

Obviously, there’s a market for this stuff. Not a market I get (the amount of money people waste pursuing fairy-tale fantasies for marriages that most often end in divorce could fund a small country) but I’ll concede that for as long as I’ll be alive, women will probably still be falling prey to the little girl dream-wedding fantasy. There’s even a market for princess dresses and nuptials blessed by Disney. But it would never have occurred to me that Seattle has a market for not one but two glossy, Seattle-specific bridal magazines. Seattle Metropolitan Magazine begs to differ:
One year after the most successful launch in Seattle’s magazine history, Seattle Metropolitan announces the July 1, 2007, launch of Seattle Metropolitan Bride & Groom (SMBG). [Rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?] The oversized, coffee-table-ready publication will establish new standards with sophisticated photography, insightful style advice, and ingenious tips that brides and grooms from Bellingham to Battle Ground can use to transform their wedding-day fantasies into memorable realities.
Today’s soon-to-be-weds are as passionate as ever about multi-tiered cakes and elaborate bouquets, but they’re equally interested in balancing ceremony with innovation.
Guided by style and fashion editor, Jill Spitznass, along with Laura Cassidy, and featuring the stunning fashion photography of Rafael Astorga, Seattle Metropolitan Bride & Groom is primed to attract the most focused and passionate wedding audience in the Seattle metropolitan area. Published twice yearly and available on better newsstands and in specialty boutiques throughout the Northwest, SMBG will make Seattle weddings more beautiful and Seattle love lovelier—one couple at a time.
“Passionate” about cakes and flowers? “Love lovelier”? Gag.
